[Jets to start McElroy at QB Sunday]
Greg McElroy will quarterback the team Sunday, but let's back up for a moment. When the Jets traded for Tebow, he was informed that he would get a chance to start should something happen to Sanchez (either due to injury or benching). But that hasn't truly happened and I'm told Tebow feels like the Jets misled him.
Tebow may deny this because he's the good soldier but there's no question he feels this way.
Whether you think Tebow can play quarterback or not, these feelings are understandable. Why in the hell did the Jets trade for Tebow? That's a fair question. Part of the answer may be that Tebow is so bad in practice, they don't feel they can trust him. But the Jets had to have some idea that Tebow can't run a conventional offense. All they had to do is look at what he did in Denver.
So some of this was Rex Ryan's ego. He thought he could mold Tebow into a good quarterback but now Ryan sees what the Broncos discovered: that it's an impossible mission. So now the quarterback situation is messy.
And will only get worse.
